Visiting Chemelil Sugar edged out Bandari 1-0 at Mbaraki Sports Club in the only league match of the day Sunday.
Shaphan Siwa accounted for the sole important statistic of the match in the first half via a headed effort to condemn the hosts to their second consecutive loss and fourth in last five outings.
Noah Abich came closest to replying for the coast side, his free kick hitting the cross bar midway through the second half.
Bandari’s inability to put away their chances came back to haunt them as they recorded 180 minutes of no scoring. Small wonder their coach Paul Nkata declined to talk to the press no doubt stewing with displeasure at his charges.
“Everything went according to plan,” his Chemelil counterpart Juma Abdalla Swaleh said with pleasure.
The sugar millers have now collected six points from their last two matches.
